Two Jordanians killed and Israeli injured in Amman embassy attack

One dead in shooting incident at Israeli embassy in Jordan: security source

The same government source insisted that Jordan would take steps to escalate the diplomatic crisis in the event that the Israeli diplomat is not handed over to the security authorities.

The security guard shot the Jordanian attacker dead, while a second Jordanian there at the time was also killed - reportedly by accident.

Israel's said its decision to enhance security came after two border police officers were killed in an attack at the compound a week ago.

Cleric Ikrema Sabri said on Monday that a lawyer for the Muslim leadership met Sunday with Jerusalem police chief Yoram Halevi, and heard a response to Muslim demands.

Israel installed metal detectors at entrances to the site after an attack nearby on July 14 that killed two of its policemen.

Muslim leaders alleged Israel was trying to expand its control at the site under the guise of security, a claim Israel has denied. It has always been a flashpoint of anti-Israel protests at times of turmoil in the Palestinian territories. In a sign of the importance Israel places on its ties with Jordan, the Israeli government moved quickly to restore calm.

Jordan is the custodian of the Al-Aqsa complex and has a large Palestinian population, making Amman sensitive to any changes of status at the site which Israel captured along with other East Jerusalem and West Bank areas in the 1967 war.

The hospital stepped in, however, saying the treatment would be unjustified because all medical options had been explored. However, now that a Columbia University neurologist will examine him, Charlie may get a second chance.after all.

One Jordanian man was shot to death and an Israeli man was wounded after a fight at the Israeli embassy in Amman.

Earlier reports said that one person had died and two - including one Israeli - were injured in Sunday's incident in a residential building used by embassy staff.

The UN Security Council will hold closed-door talks today about the spiralling violence after Egypt, France and Sweden sought a meeting to "urgently discuss how calls for de-escalation in Jerusalem can be supported".

The incident is threatening to complicate the crisis over the holy site, which is administered by Muslim authorities under the auspices of Jordan. It says they are meant to prevent more attacks.

In light of the tension, Israel kept its embassy in Ankara, Turkey, closed Monday.

Around half of Jordan's seven million citizens are of Palestinian origin.
